Microsoft DirectX 11 Support
DirectX 11 GPU with Shader Model 5.0 support designed for ultra high performance in the new API’s key graphics feature, GPU-accelerated tessellation.
NVIDIA® Optimus™ technology1
Automatically transitions between NVIDIA graphics and Intel Integrated Graphics, seamlessly and in the background, to give you great performance and great battery life – whether you’re watching a movie, surfing the web, or playing a 3D game.
NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ Ready2
NVIDIA® GeForce® GPUs brings a fully immersive stereoscopic 3D experience to notebooks. A combination of high-tech wireless glasses and advanced software, NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ transforms hundreds of PC games into full stereoscopic 3D. In addition, you can watch Blu Ray 3D, streamed 3D online, and 3D digital photographs in eye popping, crystal-clear quality.
NVIDIA GeForce Drivers
Unlock the full power and capability of your GeForce GPU. NVIDIA GeForce Drivers deliver continuous performance optimizations for the life of your notebook.
NVIDIA PhysX Technology
Full support for NVIDIA® PhysX® technology, enabling a totally new class of physical gaming interaction for a more dynamic and realistic experience with GeForce.
NVIDIA® CUDA™ technology unlocks the power of the GPU’s processor cores to accelerate the most demanding system tasks – such as video transcoding – delivering incredible performance improvements over traditional CPUs.
Hardware Video Decode Acceleration4
The combination of high-definition video decode acceleration and post-processing that delivers unprecedented picture clarity, smooth video, accurate color, and precise image scaling for movies and video all with incredible energy efficiency. Integrated with the leading HD movie software players, the GeForce GPU does the video decoding instead of the power hungry CPU, extending your battery life, reducing fan noise and freeing the CPU for multitasking, so you never miss a scene.
Support for HDMI output enables sending both high-definition video and audio signals to an HDTV via a single cable.
PCI Express 2.0 Support
Designed for the new PCI Express 2.0 bus architecture offering the highest data transfer speeds for the most bandwidth-hungry games and 3d applications, while maintaining backwards compatibility with existing PCI Express motherboards for the broadest support.
Dual-link DVI Support
Able to drive industry’s largest and highest resolution flat-panel displays up to 2560x1600 and with support for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP).
